Each piece is made to order so you will need to wait about three weeks before your plaque arrives, it will take two weeks to create the piece and one week for it to ship from Canada.When this arrived it was packaged to where the tips of the lighting bolt were extra protected to help keep them from getting damaged during shipping. I did note that due to the paint on the lighting bolt and the sealant over the pictures that it did have a slight paint smell to it when I first opened it which isn't a big deal, if you plan on gifting this I would open the mailing package and let it air out for a few moments before gifting it, after that there isn't any noticeable smell. This is completely normal with any products that have paint or a clear coating and is nothing to worry about, I just wanted to note it just in case anyone was worried after purchasing one and noticing anything scent wise.
The plaque itself is well made it is a single piece of wood that has been cut into the specific shape for the character it is featuring. I can't determine if the wood was sanded down after it was cut but it feels almost completely smooth on all the edges give or take a tiny spot or two but no one is going to be feeling it anyways so it is okay! I really like that she added a bit of texture along with the paint on the lighting bolt because it really helps bring life to it especially when the light hits it just right. The images around the exterior circle line up perfectly and there aren't any spots where the wood shows through, the clear coating on top of the images is clear, even and free of any blemishes which to me gives it extra points for being well made. I think she selected a great group of photos to use, there is a mixture of action shots from the side as well as straight on.It has a photo frame type hanger on the back and is light weight so a simple tack will hold it up. The plaque is sturdy enough that I feel like even if it did fall off of the wall somehow that no damage would come to this piece. This specific plaque is $57 plus shipping which I believe is a great price for a unique handmade home decor item, I've bought art pieces at comicon for similar prices that weren't as well made so I feel this is a very worth while art piece to purchase. Hello Skywalker also sells art prints, key holders and more!
